OpenStack's Secrets to Success: Rapid Innovation and Community Growth

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Wed, 12/17/2014 - 17:30
Webinar

OpenStack is one of the fastest growing open source projects in the world today. With over 11,000 individual members from 130 countries and 1,000 different organizations, the OpenStack ecosystem is producing some of the best cloud software in the industry.  This kind of success is not only tied to a hot technology, but also to the way the OpenStack Foundation is structured and how it works with the community that surrounds its projects.

While code may be the most tangible product of an open source community, the collaborative development methods they employ and the innovation and creativity they exhibit are raising the interest of commercial development organizations everywhere. The question many senior development managers are asking is ‚Äúif we emulate community methods, encourage sharing both inside and outside our organization, can we be more productive, creative? How can we connect with these communities to tap their expertise and leverage their collective knowledge?¬† How do we influence their direction?‚ÄĚ

Join us for this simulive webinar featuring insights from Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation, Mark Radcliffe, legal advisor to the Open Stack Foundation and Partner at DLA Piper, and Karen Copenhaver, General Counsel to the Linux Foundation and Partner at Choate Hall & Stewart.

Attendees of this webinar will learn:

  • Get the inside scoop on how OpenStack‚Äôs governance, methods and culture are enabling innovation and creativity. ¬†
  • How OpenStack‚Äôs community culture and policies make it easy for commercial organizations to engage and collaborate.
  • How your organization can get involved with OpenStack and other open source communities to increase innovation, productivity and creativity.
